Industry analyst Daniel Ahmad has revealed that Star Fox 2, which saw the light of day with the SNES Mini, will be the 19th video game published by Nintendo to sell one million units on the legacy system. Ahmad has also revealed which SNES titles sold over one million units on the Super Nintendo console.
In case you're wondering, here are the 18 Nintendo published titles that sold over 1 million units on the SNES.
Back when selling 1 million was a huge achievement.

“(I say it counts)”
I don’t know. It’s an interesting thought, but you can’t *really* count it, because you don’t know how many people bought the SNES Mini *because of* Star Fox 2. Many might not care about it at all.
I personally don’t count it. People bought a system, not one single game. Are there individuals who bought the console solely for Star Fox 2? Sure. But I’m willing to wager that’s a small minority. If they come out with an N64 mini and it sells a million, and one of the games is Super Man 64, are we going to count that too?
||It doesn’t matter why they bought, what matters are our sales…||
Bane, is that you?
I agree in that regard.
If they can count Wii Sports for the Wii which was bundled in as a tally toward sales then this counts. lol I’m guessing it counts for all of the games in the SNES Mini.
Lame marketing point. Yeah, okey it sold 1 mill copies, but 1. It wasn’t for the real SNES in it’s own time. 2. Plenty if folks bought it for Star Fox 2, but not all people did it for that reason.
By this logic, Earthbound, Super Punch-out, and Kirby’s Dreamcourse should also be added to the list.
This doesn’t count, and is a pointless article.
That hardly counts or makes sense- if we’re going to count Star Fox 2, why wouldn’t we also count the other 20 games on the machine, 2 others of which would also then hit the one million mark?
I don’t think the guy thought this through.
It counts? *rolls eyes*
Quick! Twitter pole to vote how many ppl bought SNES mini for Star Fox 2! If 1million ppl vote yes, then it counts ! 😋
Selling one million is still a huge achievement. Otherwise we wouldn’t even be discussing this.
Oh and it doesn’t count, this is not the SNES.
